I made a block for Michelle last night, for the One Block Over Bee. I used one of my favorite notions/tools, and I don’t believe I’ve ever raved about them here before… so here you go!
Sew your seam without removing the pin (you can remove it just before you sew over that area, if you really can’t make yourself sew over a pin), and voila! Perfectly matched seams:
Michelle’s block is made from Tula Pink’s Parisville line, gorgeous colors and prints (even though the center medallion fabric kind of freaks me out)….
Here is the completed block:
On a totally separate note, I’ve been enjoying scones I made this weekend, from a 1996 recipe I dug out for a friend that asked if I still had it.
We studied together in Yorkshire, England, for four weeks in 1996, and a lovely local woman shopped and cooked for us. She brought us fresh scones every. single. day, and quite often a made-from-scratch chocolate cake. Thank goodness for all the hiking and walking we did daily, or I would have came home ten pounds heavier! I had completely forgotten about these recipes until Vicki asked me for them. Next weekend, chocolate layer cake!
Those are cool looking pins!! It surely beats pinning on both sides of the seam.
Yum! Scones are so good. Did you add the clotted cream too? You should post the recipe.
btw – my hubs is freaked out by the cameo print too… so needless to say, he won't be snuggling up under my quilt! *mwahahaha* I love your teapot – is that Fiestaware?
Oh those blocks are sew cool! As are home made scones! And chocolate cake and all things yummyily baked 🙂 and yorkshire is less than an hour away from me! Glad to see you only serve tea with your scones 🙂
Scones sound so elegant. Don't you serve those with clotted cream? And tea, of course!
um I am over here drooling over the last photo. not because of scones. Is that your new fiestaware? I want some so badly. Is it bad that I want to get married NOW just so I can get some damn fiestaware?
